Manufacturer's Description from Disaster Area

DMC-3XL Gen2

The DMC-3XL Gen2 is the next generation compact MIDI controller from Disaster Area.

The Gen2 pedals all feature advanced USB MIDI connectivity in addition to their 5-pin standard MIDI ports.  This allows them to not only control your MIDI pedals but also to interface with your DAW or other MIDI software, iPad, and more.

The standard firmware for the DMC-3XL Gen2 and DMC-4 Gen2 controls the Strymon Timeline plus one additional MIDI device.  The second MIDI device is selected in the DMC setup menu.  The available devices include:  Strymon Mobius, Strymon BigSky, Line 6 M5, Eventide H9 (also compatible with Timefactor, Modfactor, Pitchfactor, and Space,) and Disaster Area DPC-5.  Pick this firmware if you have one or two MIDI pedals.

The TRINITY firmware is designed to control three MIDI devices.  Pick this if you have Timeline, Mobius, and BigSky.  Also works for two Strymon pedals and one Eventide pedal.

One MIDI cable is required for each MIDI device you wish to control.  No MIDI cables are included, but they are available separately from our online store.

The rear-panel expression pedal input is able to control expression, looper volume level, activate a favorite preset or the infinite repeat / freeze, or send tap tempo.  An optional side roller is available, which may be used to control expression or looper volume level.  The side roller defeats the rear panel jack if used.

The DMC-3XL Gen2 can control your MIDI pedal devices, including the Strymon Timeline, Mobius, and BigSky, the Eventide Factor series, Space, and H9, and the Line 6 M-Series.  Firmware features vary by connected device, but most versions have the following feature set:
